I take the Genesis account as literal narrative history, because I believe that every word of the Bible is perfect, true, and inspired, but you are certainly entitled to your own opinion on the matter.

To be honest I met people, who are trying to explain me this Oneness with the Universe for about 2 years, but I can't get it because it's hard to get involved with something of what roots you know as New Age (actuallyold-new age, but renew ideas of hippies from 60's).
OptimusSubprime Why does it have to be faith OR science? What can't we have faith AND science. Having said that, there is an important distinction to be made between real science, where the scientific method can be applied, such as Astronomy and physics... and fake pseudo-science like evolution and man made global warming, where the scientific method can not be applied 99% of the time, and therefore requires just as much faith to believe in as religion.
VHB As you say, why is Creationism, Darwinism so polarized (polar-dizzmesmerised) "the Who being us, versus Those being them". The two actually work together and no one gets it. The practical earth sciences will never understand the metaphysical those forces are based in thought intent. Faith in something can be easily corrupted by others thought forms, how does one that beleives in the Bible know it to be true? They dont by weights and measures, but hard Science misses the added element of Magick call it god or human freewill intent just as faith driven belief systems are missing the "ill logic" in their stance; faith born only with no real measureable proof.
littlebylittle I agree and say that science do not want any proof. So many people who are materialists cannot even handle what they with science have observed. Spooky Quantum entanglement for instance.
If they really wanted to prove the healing quality of faith (intention->manifestation) tools then they would have already done it. Now days it is just greed of money that makes people not have spiritual healing as a complement to giving substance that the body lack to heal itself to the best of the bodies potential. Many scientist really hate the placebo effect since it is against their faith in materialism. Faith driven people going after the healing witches again. History repeats itself with different actors/views.

Can U explain what "OP Praying" means?
If one group of people would say "we only believe in power of meditation and we they meditate all day and night to reduce violence on this planet", experts would call them "Meditators" or in a different way.
It isn't surprising that they'd attribute natural disasters to God's actions or develop cult of personalities around a figure that elevate them into godhood (or demi-godhood) over the years and centuries.
Is this because you interpret the bible literally? If that is the case, I'm sorry to say but you are a vastly shrinking minority since that line of thinking has been all but proven to be incorrect, but if you want to find more people with that thinking, you should move to the American south to the American mid-west. It's pretty much the only place left on earth where thinking like that remains
And what's more people from my family and from studies focus mostly on relationships, making love and giving birth to children and ask me, why I'm not the same?
But how can I be in a relationship with somebody if in my brain is such a mess? I guess the best husband for me would be a guy, who went through different belief systems, was an evolutionist, had a crisis of faith, but in miraculous way he was touched by the Holy Spirit, who showed him a true meaning of God's Word and God gave him a gift in speaking in tongues.
But how can I find one and if I would find, would I actually like such guy?
